Make simple map galleries with JetPhoto Studio 4.9.5   by admin   Sep 24, 2010
 

Here is a live demo of the embeded simple Google Map Gallery

 

Now your can download JetPhoto Studio version 4.9.5 beta (both Mac OS X version and Windows version) to make that.

In JetPhoto Studio version 4.9.5, addded a new option for making simple Google Map Galleries.

You should notice the new option "Show simple map without filmstrip (faster loading)" in the dialogbox when you are ready to generate the google map gallery. If you enabled this option, the filmstrip will not appear in the google map gallery page.

  

Left: a standard Google Map Gallery with the filmstrip. Right: a simple Google Map Gallery without a filmstrip.

Using the simple Google Map Gallery, no filmstip shown, it will be flexible to place the map gallery widget on any web pages in any different layouts. You must find the convenience if you are a web designer using this feature to create your pages embedded with map galleries.

Maked the map gallery that doesn't contain a filmstrip to navigate photos. But you can still easily switch photo spots on the map with a dropdown menu instead.

And another benefit obtained due to the simple map gallery is the web page loading will be speeded up. Beacuse no thumbnail image on the filmstrip is needed to load while initializing the map gallery, so the web page will be light and be loaded faster.

JetPhoto Studio v4.7.2 update   by admin   Sep 19, 2010
 

Two convenient toolsare addedin version 4.7.2:

1) Copy filenames to the photo notes
Without JetPhoto Studio, the photo files are usually named as the photo titles. If you imported your titled files into JetPhoto albums, you may need a convenient way to transfer the photo titles from the file names to the photo notes shortly. Now you can just do that with an easy click, please choose menu item “Edit”->”Copy Filenames to Photo Notes…”

copy_filename.jpg The file name is ‘Birthday Cake.JPG’.

to_note.jpg After copying, now the photo note become ‘Birthday Cake’.

2) Rename files in batches with multiple modes
Choose menu item “Edit”->”Batch Rename Files…”, you can use the tool to change filenames in batches for the selected photos. The tool enables flexible renaming photo files as a series of uniform names with a same prefix (or/and a same suffix), and add an index number or a time string into each filename automatically. The program can also read the EXIF photo capture time tags and write them into the filenames. In this way, you can always easily sort your photo files by events or categories in any environment even without JetPhoto Studio.

rename-numbers.jpg rename files by appending index numbers

rename_time1.jpg rename files by appending photo capture time

rename_time2.jpg rename files with a prefix-time-suffix combination, example, you can name photo files as Event + Time + Location

JetPhoto Studio 4.7   by admin   Dec 10, 2009
 

What’s new in version 4.7?

 

Camera RAW files storage

The JetPhoto Studio v4.7 allows store camera raw files in album packages. The raw files can be Nikon NEF, Canon CR2 and more others. Users can select to copy or move external raw files into JetPhoto albums, and JetPhoto will always automatically create a JPEG copy for each imported raw file.

raw1.jpg

When browsing photos in JetPhoto albums, right-click (or control-click) a thumbnail, you can find two items in the context menu to reveal either the JPEG file or the RAW file for each photo.

raw2.jpg

Now, it’s possible to geotag raw files in JetPhoto Studio v4.7. After locating photos with GPS, you can continue to use EXIF Tools to write the GPS metadata (latitude, longitude, altertude) into either the photo RAW file or the JPEG copy.

raw_exif.jpg

Also important, a memory leak bug was fixed in this version. This bug caused failed importing raw files in batches.

 

Google Map Gallery - Select photos in a list

JetPhoto Studio v4.7 added a new optional feature in the Google Map gallery. A dropdown list can be shown in the map, and users can select items on the list to switch photos fast. Now there are three ways to navigate photos within Google Map gallery: clicking hot spots in the map, clicking thumbnails in the bottom bar and clicking a menu item in the list.

To edit list items is very easy, you can type them in photo notes directly. Normally, the list item only include two or three words, but sometimes the photo description is too long to show completely in the list. Therefore, the Google Map gallery will find the first line break in the photo description and only show the first line of the photo note as a list item (both a “return” and a <br> html tag can be accepted as a line break).

Enhanced Address Lookup (Reverse Geocoding)

The reverse geocoding is not only a “concept proof” in JetPhoto Studio v4.7. Address Lookup program is enhanced in this version. It became an easy-to-use feature to create photo descriptions and keywords automatically according to the locations where photos were taken.

You can show your photos in maps after locating them. However there is one more fun, use Address Lookup program that will connect Google Maps server and invoke the reverse geocoding services to convert the latitude/longitude data to a human-readable address. In a magic way, JetPhoto Studio will add photo notes and keywords automatically for your photos.

address_lookup1.jpg

For example, I took a photo in Stanford University campus. The photo has been located at latitude N37.42718° and longitude W122.17033° in JetPhoto Studio. Then, Address Lookup program will work to add a photo note and three keywords for the photo automatically:

- Photo Note: Stanford Memorial Church, Stanford
- Keywords: Stanford, CA94305, USA

address_lookup2.jpg

The new Address Lookup feature are available in both Windows version and Mac version of JetPhoto Studio v4.7 .

 

Export / Import Keywords

In JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Mac, users can export keywords list to a text file, or restore the keywords list with importing a text file. The functionality brings an easy way to manage keywords presets. Now you can first prepare your favorite keywords presets in any text editor, and import them into your album anytime later.

 

Geotagging Assistant

We developed a Geotagging Assistant program and added it as a new feature in JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Mac. Now users can geotag their photos step by step.The program will guide users to finish all steps with ease.
